Re: “Arkansas's medical marijuana growers come to light

I want to thank Bold Team, LLC for choosing to place their site in Cotton Plant. Anywhere on the Delta the people of that region would have gotten onto their knees and thanked God for the privilege of one of the plants in their region. But Cotton Plant is in the middle of an entire district that's not exactly Delta and not exactly anything except broke and broken down by the leaving of all of the factories in the area. Since all of the American Greetings closed in 2001-2, the entire area has been stricken by bad luck and devastation. I hope and pray that this action is the beginning of a new life for all of Woodruff County and the region.

Re: “Public comments run against Interstate 30 widening plan

Claude Bahls, the bottleneck for Searcy/Cabot/Beebe distance workers isn't downtown. It's Jacksonville, that's been under construction for 20+ years, and the 67/167/I-40 death trap. They could make downtown into Adams Field and it still wouldn't help people get to their homes any faster due to what's on down the road.

Re: “Mother and child in Little Rock homeless camp

This is a prime example of the people of Arkansas being intentionally blind to the homeless population. I know for a fact that in one town with a population of 13,000 there are 250 homeless kids attending school there. It's the same in most towns. The general population believes the rhetoric that 'if they only look for a job they can find one'. Well, try to pay rent on minimum wage. You can't do it. Politicians have made the comments that people can work two jobs. I have known people trying to work THREE jobs and still living in their cars. If the state does not provide enough affordable housing to people then we're going to have kids in the camps. It's that simple.

Re: “New DHS compliance and integrity unit to investigate beneficiaries for fraud

I would guess that they will find about the same amount of fraud as they would if they tried to find an honest politician. I've had to help several people recently with applications, simply because they were sent a notice in the mail, and by the time they received it, their benefits were canceled.

Re: “Perry County representative continues attack on Arkansas Tech

Like Going for the record again, I pass Tech daily, sometimes several times. Tech and Russellville just completed changes on O Street, so that it will be more easily accessible to students in the apartments off campus. Note that these apartments were constructed when housing on campus became unable to hold the students. The cost of this little upgrade of the road was several million bucks, far more than could be accessed from tuition. And that's just one very visible piece of a very large pie. I will add to the comment on year. I'm not from Russellville, but in the '80s I came through here frequently, en route to visiting my in-laws in Franklin county. Tech has exploded since then. Back then, Tech looked like a junior college. Both Tech and Pulaski Tech are no longer junior colleges by any means of the imagination, and if Bentley thinks they are, she just proves that someone could own Acme Brick company and still be three bricks shy a full load.

Re: “More Medicaid mess at DHS

Sue, I'm not hitting 'dislike' on your statement, but on the whole mess.

Re: “Human Services says it's eliminated Medicaid application backlog

Funny to me as well. What about the backlog in applications for Long Term Care (LTC)? So far as I know, that backlog would reach to Chicago.
